To be honest I have zero interest in ranked voting or supervoting and mild interest in “multivoting”
I feel that all 3 systems are solving a problem that largely does not exist. And definitely does not exist in any of the current sites we host including the most popular voting category we have in the wild.
Features - Infinite Flight Community
It is pretty clear what the community want in the above list. What is unclear is what “the powers that be” plan to do about these ideas? What is planned? what is rejected? What is the “official” response?
The issue “supervotes”, “vote priority” and “multivoting” are trying to solve is an ability to get “more signal” from a noisy idea list. Why work on feature X if its everyone’s 3rd pick?
I feel “supervotes” fails hugely in that it is super confusing for end users, how do they decide if they “super” want something vs “want”?
I feel “vote priority” fails hugely cause we will make a fancy page that almost nobody will go to. Even if by some miracle everyone went to said page and diligently ranked every vote, what would you even do with this signal. I feel the ergonomics for vote priority are just bad and I can not think of any way of making the ergonomics good. If you force this decision upfront its a huge mess, if you defer it nobody will bother.
I am partial to “multivoting” cause it makes migrating data from uservoice easier, and its a simpler system for users to comprehend and use. However, it also has some huge flaws, cause the number you see on a topic does not represent number of users, so it can be very misleading. I am also unclear if it will do a better job at ranking ideas vs the current system.
My call here is to shelf multivoting, feature ranking and supervoting till many more of the core issues are sorted with the plugin and there are some examples in the wild of places that need this.
